Squeaking while running when set to a low incline.
When the tread mill is set to a level 2 or 3 incline with every foot fall there is loud squeaking that seems to be coming from the hinges where it connects to the base. I noticed there is what looks like a thick plastic washer at the joints, and I can see a bolt with a nylock nut. Could the nut be loose and that cause the squeaking? I can only see the end of the bolt with the thread and the nut, I can't see the head so I do not know how to tighten it.

Its time to lubricate your treadmill. You must obtain the proper lubricant for your treadmill. There are several different types. Contact your manufacturer for what type is needed. Using the manufacturer provided allen wrench, loosen the walking belt approximately 10 full turns on each side of the rear roller. Apply approximately 1/2 ounce of lubricant directly in the middle of the walk area underneath the walking belt upon the deck. Retighten the rear roller 10 turns on each side. Run the treadmill at 6.0 mph for 2-3 minutes to spread the lubricant evenly. Wipe excess lube from the sides of the belt. Walk on treadmill to check for proper tension on belt. for make it easy for you I have added a video. ok
There are four suspension rods that the tub hangs on. When the washer is agitating the tub will rock back and forth and the rods will move back and froth as well. To fix this noise, lift up in each rod and put some lubricant in the cup that the rods fit into at the top of the washer.
Note that it is best if you use a lithium-based lubricant rather than silicone based lubricant.
The problem is most likely your drum belt. Most run all the way around the outside of the drum, across a tensioner pulley, and around the motor.
This could be easy, or it could be a nightmare. Disassembly of the outer cabinet can be tricky. Some drums ride on pullies, while others slide on drum felts.
Your local appliance parts store can give you some guidance, and probably a few cards of qualified service guys. If you're mechanically inclined, and have a history of being able to take machines apart, AND reassemble without extra parts laying around, then give it a shoy. Otherwise, pay a pro, and save your Saturday.
